    It makes Pokémon of the opposite gender to the Pokémon with it appear more in wild encounters, in the case of Combee sometimes I'd have 5 female Combee's appear in a row. Without it you usually only get 1 female Combee for every 6 or 7 males. It's definitely good for starters or Eevee's which don't have equal gender encounter ratios.


    Of course I believe 1 shiny is set randomly as soon as you walk into a friend safari so if the shiny is the male, with cute charm you may be forcing the shiny to not appear. It's not going to change the shiny to female. Of course if the shiny is female then you're cutting out 5 or 6 male encounters.


    In a Friend Safari with 1 gender only Pokémon like Volbeat it would make them appear less. Not 100%, maybe like 75% less.

      I feel so stupid... thankfully you posted about Cute Charm, otherwise I'd be hunting female Pokemon the painful way still. Yes, I previously got a female Combee with hidden ability the old fashion way.... *shudders*

      I've decided to catch all hidden ability Pokemon in X/Y and ORAS in Luxury Ball(s), so I am going back and doing the ones I previously caught in different kinds of balls (usually based on what color the Pokemon was). Cute Charm will make my life much, much easier

      EDIT: Caught a male Jigglypuff and named him SmoothCrimin (not shiny), and taught him Brick Break. Now I can hunt for that blasted female Eeevee with Anticipation much easier. Thanks!

        Did some more wonder trades and got a shiny Cobalion yesterday. Although, I might still try and catch my own because I don't feel comfortable accepting shiny legendaries from other people for nothing unless they're from an event. I also got a shiny Accelgor from wonder trade just now.

          I've yet to get a shiny from Wonder Trade. Seems to happen a lot from Poketubers handing out freebies.


          Elvis the male Woobat

          EDIT: Found a shiny Woobat while playing on my Y Nuzlocke playthrough. This makes 3 shiny Pokémon obtained on Nuzlocke; all three from special interactions. One from a bush, one from using Rock Smash, and this one from a cave shadow! Either I've been lucky, or those interactions have a higher shiny rate than normal!

            Got a shiny Palkia from wonder trade yesterday, but I'm gonna put that up for trade because I've already got one.

            I just caught my second shiny Snubbull from a friend safari and I'm currently evolving it.

                I did my first shiny hunt in Omega Ruby. I used the old rod to fish chain a Magikarp at 49 and a Tentacool at a chain of 9.

                  I'm breeding shinies with my OT now because I have no life and.. ok I have no explanation. My favorite is my 5IV Charmander in a Dive Ball. Didn't come out with Solar Power, but that's okay. Its IVs are 31/31/31/x/31/31 and it's Adamant with 4 egg moves. Perfect Mega Charizard X

                  I'm working on Deino now for a friend. They're in dusk balls with 4 egg moves and a Timid nature. Currently at like 400 or so eggs.

                    After the first Tentacool I did some more fish chains in order to find a second shiny Tentacool.




                    Instead I found 6 more shiny Magikarp.
                    The first at 24, then 30, then 38, then 9, then 52, and finally at 62.

                        I got shiny Abra today in Friend Safari, the 3rd encounter and the first Abra encounter.



                        I actually had a dream last night about finding a shiny Abra in Friend Safari without a pokemon with shadow tag in the first spot. It was the main reason I decided to go to that friend safari. I got a crit cap so the shadow tag didn't matter. It actually ties with Butterfree for quickest friend safari shiny.


                        I forgot to mention this but had some incredible luck with Snubbull, it actually used Roar and failed... Not sure if it failed because we were in FS, or my pokemon being higher level. But I think it was just luck.

                          After breaking a chain of 53, I did another chain and finally got a second Tentacool at 13. I evolved it into Tentacruel.


                          Another Gen 1 Pokémon knocked off the list.




                          Edit: I just caught a Trapinch with Arena Trap so I could hunt for shiny Kirlia, found a shiny Kirlia in 18 encounters.


                          Edit Again: Not literally 2 minutes after the Kirlia I find a shiny Magmar in 4 encounters. I love these back to back quick shinies in Friend Safari, this is the 3rd time after Espurr in 7 and Drowzee in 1 and then Tangela 63 and Electabuzz at 13.


                          Edit Third Time: This is my best day ever, 4 shinies. Just found Spiritomb in FS after 11 encounters.

                            So I just got alpha sapphire a couple of weeks ago and I haven't been able to really hunt on it so I have got any shines myself, but I did get shiny dragonite, shiny Milotic, and shiny Xerneas in wonder trades.

                            I am currently hunting electrode!

                            Btw I just joined the club

                              Caught a shiny Yanma while hunting for the remaining hidden abilities that I never grabbed from my Pokemon X cartridge.



                              Name: Zippy
                              Nature: Docile
                              Ability: Compound Eyes

                              I might get an ability capsule for this one... Speed Boost seems better. I just checked Smogon, though, and saw there is a build for both non-HA abilities. *shrug*

                                  Shiny Female Pidgey - This Pidgey was caught in a Friend Safari and has a relaxed nature with the Tangled Feet ability. I instantly noticed that Shiny Pidgey is a lot darker than its regular form. Oddly Shiny Pidgeotto is an odd Green colour. My Shiny Pidgey is now a Shiny Pidgeot and for me Shiny Pidgeot with its dark brown feathers and all yellow crest is a better colouration than her regular color scheme.

                                  I plan to transfer her over to Alpha Sapphire at some point and see how she fares as a Shiny Mega Pidgeot.

                                    I was just cycling through some grass on Omega Ruby and this shiny Electrike appeared and took me by surprise. I don't even have the shiny charm on this save file yet.

                                      Woooooo!!! I found shiny Lapras today in Friend Safari, encounter 956...




                                      I don't normally continue in Friend Safaris past 512 unless I really want a specific shiny.


                                      My longest Friend Safari now with a shiny caught, and I was in a Friend Safari with Delibird and Bergmite, I already had Delibird and didn't really want Bergmite as this was going to be the last shiny in my second box and wanted it to be either Lapras, Ninetales or Vileplume. Also of course Lapras is a Gen 1 Pokémon and I'm trying to complete the Gen 1 Pokedex with shinies. At least the ones I can get in X, Y and Omega Ruby.


                                      It's kind of funny as I got 3 shinies in 33 encounters total in Friend Safari about 5 days ago. And then this Lapras takes almost 1,000 encounters. Friend Safari is random.


                                      BTW my first ever bred egg move/46 level up Imprison/Perish Song Misdreavus was not bred in vain.

                                        Caught a shiny Geodude (gal) while hunting for hidden abilities in Pokemon X. I am always hunting with the best Pokemon for each route/horde and brought my Latias and Latios with me. Latias is my lead, so I can get a Heatmor with White Smoke, and I used Guard Split to keep the shiny alive. Swapped to Latios (both have Heal Pulse) and used Telekinesis on the shiny; Even though only one Magnitude was used the whole battle... oh well, helps to be prepared

                                          When I found my second shiny Geodude in Victory Road it was the only one to use Magnetude so it actually helped my knock out the others.

                                            even though i took a short break, my shiny luck still prevails as of late!
                                            another shiny klang appeared after 353 REs- and since my sister named my previous klang arin hanson, she insisted that this one be named dan avidan.
                                            ain't that just the way. though classes prevented me from hunting much this summer, i found a little time during a car ride to SR in ORAS as well- and
                                            came up with a shiny castform after only 103 SRs! My shortest reset hunt by far.



                                            I really hope this luck holds out! only one more shiny to complete my ORAS team.

                                                Shiny Female Butterfree (Happy) - Found in a Friend Safari, my new Shiny Butterfree is Level 30 with a Brave Nature and the Hidden Ability Tinted Lens. She also has two Perfect IV's in Special Attack and Speed. I really like the feminine purple and pink colour scheme here and there is a lot of cuteness in Butterfree's Shiny Colouration. It has Whirlwind but luckily it did not use it during the battle. Considering it's colouration I am pleased to get a Female Shiny.

                                                Shiny Male Wartortle (Blue) - Caught in a Water Friend Safari that contained only two Pokemon (Wartortle and Krabby) After a mere 9 encounters in that Shiny Safari session, the new Shiny Wartortle is Level 30 with a Timid Nature, the Torrent ability and perfect IV's in Defence and Special Defense. The Squirtle line is my favourite water starter and I plan to train the Shiny Wartortle into a Shiny Blastoise. Whilst not a dramatic change (Although it is instantly noticeable) I like the dark purple skin and green shell of Shiny Wartortle. Whilst Blastoise is a classic Pokémon with a superb regular Colour scheme I plan to take this Shiny Pokémon to the Battle Maison and train it in defence. The name Blue comes as Pokémon Blue was my first Pokemon game and Squirtle was my first ever Pokémon.

                                                This means I have found two Friend Safari Pokémon in one day.
